Pi Yao (or Pixiu) is a Chinese mythical hybrid creature considered to be a very powerful protector and bringer of good fortune.
It is a fierce creature, a winged lion with two horns and large fangs visible in the creature's mouth used to attack demons and evil spirits, draining their essence and converting it to wealth. In tribute to Pi Yao's ferocity and prowess in battle, it was the symbol of the army in ancient China. Also statues of Pi Yao were also used as tomb guardians.
As it is a guardina Pi Yao must be placed so it is facing out of the room it is placed in, preferably a pair of Pi Ya is needed to watch an opening or entrance.
